What are the weaknesses of beskar'gam (armor made of Mandalorian iron)? I know lightsabers can't cut through it. However, I'm also assuming that it would be less than advisable to be struck by lighting -Force or otherwise- as you're essentially wearing a metal suit. Since Jarael's shockstaff seems to inflict damage against the armor, then one could assume the principle extends to shock weapons. (Not that I've read the KotOR comics myself, just going off the trivia section of an article). You could also assume that the places where the armor plates meet would be weaker points. But aside from this, does anyone know the achilles heel of beskar'gam? --Splinter Smile 04:40, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
This isn't so much of an achilles heel so to speak, as it requires a great deal of training to accomplish, but Jedi who are skilled enough in the shatterpoint power can shatter beskar'gam with just a tap. Jacen and Jaina have both done so. JethLordMaster(Talk) 04:54, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

On the question of sith lightning, Mandalorian Neo-Crusader Battle Armor in KoToR was well defended agaisnt Lightning and electricity. FYI: it's the blue armor w/o a helmet you would pick up from dead Mandalorians on Kashyyk and elsewhere. (Although you never see Neo-Crusaders wearing it).
